Pistorius granted bail following murder conviction

Disgraced South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was granted bail today after judges changed his conviction for manslaughter to murder last week.

The Paralympic "Blade Runner" killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013 and will now remain under house arrest until he is sentenced in April next year.

Pistorius will appear in court on April 18 to give an update on his appeal at the constitutional court.

A man accused of murdering a great-grandfather in a "road rage" stabbing after a car crash will appear at the Old Bailey on Friday.

Matthew Daley, 34, is accused of fatally knifing 79-year-old cycling enthusiast Donald Lock after their cars were involved in an alleged minor shunt.

Mr Lock, who had recently been given the all-clear from prostate cancer, was driving back from a cycling meeting when he was repeatedly stabbed on the A24 at Findon, near Worthing, West Sussex, on July 16.

Daley, of St Elmo Road, Worthing, was charged by Sussex Police with murder and possession of a knife in a public place.
